Follow the Drinking Gourd

Paul Campbell

Chorus:
 EmAEm
     Follow the drinking gourd,
 AEm
     Follow the drinking gourd,
 GDEmBm
     For the old man is a waitin' for to carry you to freedom,
 EmBmEm
     Follow the drinking gourd.

 Em
When the sun comes up and the first quail calls,
Follow the drinking gourd.
 GDEmBm
The old man is a waitin' for to carry you to freedom,
 EmBmEm
 Follow the drinking gourd.

Chorus.

Now the river bank'll make a mighty good road,
The dead trees will show you the way.
Left foot, peg foot, travelin' on,
Follow the drinking gourd.

Chorus.

Now the river ends between two hills,
Follow the drinking gourd.
There's another river on the other side,
Follow the drinking gourd.

Chorus.
